German Tank Wars

KB0128

This is another DVD in the series where the title is less meaningful when translated to English. It suggests battles, but the primary content is technical and tactics. There is some colour footage and the stills gallery provides images of early German tank types and self-propelled guns.

DESCRIPTION: The series of DVD based on original German film footage are probably best viewed as a complete series. There is very little direct footage overlap between each DVD, at least as this reviewer has so far viewed them, and much of the footage is very rare and probably seen nowhere since 1945 when some of it was used in training or in German newsreels. The real value is in the footage with sparse commentary, much of which is original and a Nazi propaganda presentation. This is another DVD in the series where the title is less meaningful when translated to English. It suggests battles, but the primary content is technical and tactics. There is some colour footage and the stills gallery provides images of early German tank types and self-propelled guns. As with other DVDs in the series there is sparse commentary and stilted translation in the English sound track but that does not detract from the imagery and there is some martial music to add to the viewing experience. The main target market for this DVD series is undoubtedly the military enthusiast, but the DVDs are affordable for a much wider range of viewers and should sell well.
